Jagex will be adding a card game to its library of online games very soon. Drawing inspiration from the popular Runescape universe, Chronicle: Runescape Legends has quietly been in development since the beginning of the year. The game debuted this past weekend at Runefest.

Lead Designer, James Sweatman said that Jagex wants to ensure that the game is "not only a fun and compelling player experience, but one still very much interwoven into the rich lore of RuneScape. We're looking forward to sharing more information on the game over the coming months, especially in regards to Chronicle's debut on tablet and mobile!"


Chronicle is slated to release on PC, Mac, Tablets, and other mobile platforms and will also allow you to earn cards by achieving certain tasks in the free-to-play, MMORPG Runescape.

We'll be sure to keep you posted as release draws closer!

In the meantime, if you're a Runescape fan you can check out all the other info Runefest had in store!

Look incredibly bad.
1. hearstone is a garbage RNG ( luck ), pay / grind to win game with pathetic balance and a ton of other problems but t does look great. SO if you want to copy something then copy that.
Your 3d cam looks terrible. 2d is the way to go but developers always t"think" how #D "is so cool".

Also last thing we need is another garbage pay to win game like hearthstone.

I don't mind people ripping off a game that sucks, because that means there's potential for them to make a better version of it. I don't enjoy Hearthstone, there's a lot of problems I have with it, so I hope Jagex makes a card game that's more enjoyable, and preferably with more single player content because I don't enjoy playing against real players.

All real players do is recycle the same decks and cheese strategies they see everyone else using, and so every game feels like you're playing against the exact same opponent. This is why the only enjoyable aspect for me in Hearthstone was their Naxxramas content. The PvP was horrible - every other game was the same Unleash the Hounds/Buzzard combo deck or Zoo deck and I got tired of going against the same crap in 90% of my games.
